Subject[PATCH 1/3] net: wan: wanxl: use $(CC68K) instead of $(AS68K) for rebuilding firmware
As far as I understood from the Kconfig help text, this build rule is
used to rebuild the driver firmware, which runs on the QUICC, m68k-based
Motorola 68360.

The firmware source, wanxlfw.S, is currently compiled by the combo of
$(CPP) and $(AS68K). This is not what we usually do for compiling *.S
files. In fact, this is the only user of $(AS) in the kernel build.

Moreover, $(CPP) is not likely to be a m68k tool because wanxl.c is a
PCI driver, but CONFIG_M68K does not select CONFIG_HAVE_PCI.
Instead of combining $(CPP) and (AS) from different tool sets, using
single $(CC68K) seems simpler, and saner.

After this commit, the firmware rebuild will require cc68k instead of
as68k. I do not know how many people care about this, though.

I do not have cc68k/ld68k in hand, but I was able to build it by using
the m68k toolchain. [1]
